    To all APPLE fans, the article also says:

    Criminals are also increasingly targeting Apple AAPL, +0.02% devices by bypassing the company’s typical review process for apps by using a program Apple designed for companies to be able to build in-house iOS apps for employees. Those apps aren’t subject to Apple’s appraisal. The security company called the tactic “an intriguing avenue for attackers in the future,” according to the report.

    Whoops fogot to read the article didnt you?

    Lumia 900 has a bad microphone that doesn't regulate the input when recording video, which ruins the video. If you are using 7.8 you obviously don't use apps because there aren't any.

    How do you know there will be a 940?

    WP10 (W10 desktop will) will not catch on, and you will see the beginning of the end of WP by the end of this year.

    I switched back from Windows Phone for the last 3 years to Android on an LG G3 and its fantastic. Windows is sinking as fast as Nokia did. The burning platform of Nokia spread the flames to the WP OS and its a sinking burning disaster. MS knows this, if WP10 doesn't connect, its over. I had 3 MS phone devices and tablet, so I know from experience. WP is done.

    Also the Nokia reliability and quality was way over hyped. I had two Lumia 925s crash within 1 year. The phones I had were not very reliable at all. They were durable however.

    I had a Zune HD, terrific device but Microsoft has a habit of kicking their hardware to the curb after only a year or two.

    Examples:

    Zune HD
    Lumia 900 (did not get WP8)
    Lumia 920-1320 (will not get WP10)
    Surface RT (to be discontinued)

    I'm pretty tired of wasting my money on these products.

    I understand the strategy. I understand mobile importance. I don't hate the OS, but I have faced the fact that its not going anywhere no one uses it, and it will continue to drag.

    Surface sales are not yet a big success. Improving does not mean success. It pales in comparison to existing tablets. I have a dell W8.1 tablet, love it. but I understand its not a big winner.

    First of all, its not free. The price is built into the plan. Why did you think its free?

    "Why buy a $500 phone when you can buy a $200 phone with the same build quality and utility as an iPhone?"

    That is quite an inaccurate statement. A $200 phone such as 635 or 521 does not compare to an iPhone build quality, please don't skew facts.

    And I answer NO to all your questions.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but this article backs me up 100%

    Market share has fallen from 3.3% to 2.7%

    635 and 835 are low end phones and are the best offering right now. ATT do not even carry WP in stock in their stores anymore, T-mobile only has the 635 and 521, Verizon discontinued the Icon. 1330 will be a low end phablet, their strategy is market flood for cheap, like original xbox for market share grab, but its not working.

    The OS is good...but no one cares.

    The problem with that is, why should Apple and Droid phones include it? They only have because its a big demand item and they get a cut.

    Nah, their 2015-16 line up is a joke and they reneged on the promise to upgrade legacy Nokia phones to WP10. Only the newer x35 phones got the preview because of quad core.

    I'm telling you there is nothing compelling coming with wp10. Its going to be a dud because there isnt a user base that even cares. 3% market share and stagnant.

    This is more about Microsoft Windows Phones tanking than it does with the Chinese government.

    As a former WP supporter, I see no future at all for Windows Phone, and I don't think Nadella believes in it either. Their line up of low quality entry phones demonstrates perfectly their desire to break up and shutter Nokia division completely.

    This phone business will not last 5 years, and the drag on the company will have investors screaming unlce, and the activist board member company will start raising a stink if not already.

    Windows phone sucks. I speak from experience of the last 3 years and 3 WP models as my personal phones. I now own an LG G3 and couldn't be happier. The difference is night and day and WP does not hold a drop of water against the competition. Cortana is a stupid idiot next to OK google. Sorry but its just true. Time to face the facts.

    Very good points regarding the aspects. Regarding a banking app though is a way of retaining customers by providing a convenience. It may not make them money but it certainly helps retain it through customer service and demand.

    Money making apps are by way of advertising, in app purchases or buying an app. You have to consider that an average top rated app can have 40 million downloads on Android and 50,000 on windows phone. Is there any reason why this developer would make an app at a risk of a potential loss on windows phone? Many app developers are a few basement trolls looking to hit it big with one app, and many have on Android and you hear the stories. I have yet to hear about any must have app for Windows proprietary purposes.

    The argument in favor of Windows Phone in my view is already over. Maybe its popular internationally, that cannot keep it going because the volume is just not even close to the US market.

    If you want to compare sales in the UK vs US go ahead its probably not even close.

    What doesn't make the market overvalued at this point? Share your opinion, I'd like to hear it.
